Paul Pogba Teams Up With Adidas To Create The World's First 100% Vegan Football Boot

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has collaborated with Adidas and fashion designer Stella McCartney to co-create the world's first 100% vegan football boot.

The limited-edition, gender-neutral boot - priced at €280 (£236) - fuses the distinct design, innovation and sustainable values of McCartney with the expressive style and elite performance requirements of World Cup winner Pogba.

In addition to the above, the latest performance innovations from the Predator franchise uses materials and components closely analysed to ensure they conform to both vegan and elite performance standards.

"Together with us, the two visionaries have collaborated to unlock the potential of design to push boundaries and create with the planet in mind," Adidas say on their official website.

The 28-year-old France international, who played an integral role in the boot's development stage, has labelled the new limited edition Predators as "bold" and "unique".

"I am a footballer first and foremost, but I have a huge interest in fashion and design and I've always wanted to explore this further," Pogba said.

"This collaboration has been particularly special for me because I've been a fan of Stella McCartney's work for a long time, so when we came together for The Huddle last year and had this idea, it felt like the perfect opportunity to create something.

"It was in the middle of lockdown and I was missing playing football so much, so it was an incredible feeling to be able to focus on something that combines my love for the game with my passion for style. The boots we created with adidas are bold and unique, and I can't wait to wear them when I step onto the pitch."

Stella McCartney added: "Since the start of my collaboration with adidas, we've continued to push the boundaries in high-fashion and performance wear so it's incredibly exciting to be expanding into the world of football with the superstar athlete Paul Pogba.

"Last year during lockdown, adidas brought Paul and I together for The Huddle which is where this idea was first born. Hearing how passionate he was about fashion and learning how much we had in common really sparked the inspiration for co-creating this iconic boot.

"One comment that stuck with me was how fashion was part of his personality both on and off the pitch, so it was important for this to shine through in the design.

"Creating with the planet in mind is core to the adidas by Stella McCartney partnership and as the first adidas vegan football boot, the Predator Freak also uses part recycled materials.

"Working together on the design and bouncing ideas off each other was such a fun experience, and the boot perfectly fuses the world of fashion and football, showing how we can continue to create with the planet in mind."
